If you want to get deep in '72 don't forget July-December.
The spring tour seems to get the lion's share of attention, but the playing from 7/16 to 12/31 is remarkable. It's uniquely complex, nuanced; there's one drummer, Keith has settled in, Jerry's voice is youthful and energetic, on and on.
The music never sounded like it did before this period, or after.

Yeah, the 8/21 show from Berkeley Community Theater is a particular favorite of mine from Fall '72...
